Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is [the Duplass brothers'] best yet."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It's boring."
‑ James Adams, Globe and Mail
"The movie creeps up on you, and it's not until its firecracker ending that you realize just how much it made you care about these people."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Jeff, Who Lives at Home offers escapism of a different kind, an entertaining reminder that good people sometimes prevail, and that living by your own Yoda logic in your own universe may not be such a bad thing."
‑ Matt Kelemen, Las Vegas CityLife
"Like its slacker hero, the Duplass Brothers' offbeat comedy is shambling, easygoing and slow to get going, but if you don't mind the film's zany meanderings then Jason Segal's sweet-natured Jeff is an amiable companion."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"The funny, touching and vital Jeff, Who Lives at Home reaffirms your faith in Jay and Mark Duplass. Their films hit you where you live."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The lives of these sweet, confused, basically decent people wrap around one another in ways that are funny, far-fetched and touching."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Lacking compelling characters, this comedy never fully works as a cohesive whole."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"An enjoyable indie dramedy with a number of engaging moments and a solid performance from Jason Segel but not nearly as deep as the ideals that fuel Jeff's character."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"...sweet, warmhearted, meandering, slow, and most often humorous."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
""Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is a high-wire act that could crash if the actors were out of sync, but under this big top, the never-better Segel keeps everyone aloft."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Generates quite a few laughs on the way to a surprisingly satisfying climax."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"True to their trademark vérité style, the Duplass siblings make the humdrum hum with low-key panache, as they consistently find beauty and truth in everyday occurrences."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"At 84 minutes it feels remarkably like an extended episode of a good sitcom."
‑ Mary Clare Waireri, Fan The Fire
"The fourth feature from Jay and Mark Duplass is the least impressive of their canon, despite it being sweet and slight and slim in all the right ways."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
